Shanghai by Andy McKee Ukulele Chords

Shanghai by Andy Mckee
Tuning: E B D G B D
For this song, capo the first five (lowest) strings on the second fret. This tab is
relative to the capo. I figured most of it out by ear, but I had a little help from another
tab on Ultimate Guitar as well Andy Mckee’s video on Youtube. Some of the chords during
the bridge are pretty difficult to hold, but you’ll get it through practice and
endurance. Enjoy!
